Alastair’s Photo Fiction – Mary’s Gift

alastair_photo fiction

This was the cheapest ornament he could find in the gift shop. However, it glittered and looked huge. So, Larry took it home. Mary looked at the ornament with shining eyes. She dangled it lovingly on the Christmas tree.

Everyday she went over to the living room to check if her precious glittering ball was still there.  She touched it and even kissed it when she thought no one was looking. Larry noticed everything and felt envious of the ornament. He started buying expensive designer ornaments for the tree. Larry even went around decorating the house with lights and got a new Christmas tree. He decorated the tree with all ornaments, except the cheap ornament. Next day, he found it in a prominent place on the tree.

Exasperated, he unfastened the ornament from the tree and tossed it away. Mary picked it up from the rubble, “This is the first thing you bought for me in the 25 years of our life together. I would never throw it away.”

    • She cherishes it as it is a first gift after 25 years. Larry doesn’t have the spirit of giving at all:)) Thank you very much for the comment:) always appreciate your stopping here

  1. First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your head before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Cheers!
